She'll explore celebrity tragedies such as Bobbi Kristina Brown and Whitney Houston's disturbing parallel deaths, the mysterious demise of both Michael Jackson and Anna Nicole Smith and the crimes and punishment of O.J. Simpson. Additionally, Soledad will take a deep dive into the Wonderland Murders, notorious serial killers of the '80s such as Richard Ramirez and Aileen Wuornos, the odd and captivating Slenderman Attacks, and more.
